Word 2010 - Drop Down List - Content Control

    Question

  • Good afternoon.  One of our users has a form and wants to use a drop down list content control BUT wants the people filling out the form to be able to pick multiple selections from the drop down.

    Is that possible?  If not, is there a different type of content control that would allow this drop down list/multiple selection options?

    We are on Windows XP, 2008 R2 and running Office 2010 Word

  • AFAIK you'd have to use ActiveX Listbox control and then select the Multiple Select option from the Properties window.

  • Good afternoon, Rich.  I met with the customer and we walked through the information you provided. 

    Is there a way to import the list that he needs to have in the drop down or does it need to be added using the VBA feature? 

    Thank you in advance for your information.

  • The only way that I know how to populate the list is via VBA.  I've never seen another method.
